Microwave Food Is Not Good!

Ever wondered whether microwave food is not good for you? If you have, you’d have been onto something!

Microwave Food Is Not Good! In fact, Microwave Food Is REALLY Not Good For You!

Not only is microwave cooking performed at 2.4 gHz, which is really not good for us in itself, (check out the article on EMF The Invisible Killer, which is one of a series of articles on EMF, (Electro-Magnetic Fields / Frequencies), in the Wild As The Wind Blog… I advise you to read them all! I also advise you to visit the Shungite page, which also provides invaluable information on EMF and 2.4 gHz…

It’s also very destructive to the food we place in microwave ovens in order to cook them…


This article is based on an article that’s recently been released on the amazing website / alt medicine search engine :: GreenMedInfo

Studies Show Microwaves Drastically Reduce Nutrients In Food

All of the quotes included in this article are from the reference article in GreenMedInfo.

Microwaves Release Toxins Into Food

Microwaving fatty foods in plastic containers leads to the release of dioxins (known carcinogens) and other toxins into your food… Chemicals released include polyethylene terpthalate (PET), benzene, toluene, and xylene.

Additionally, microwaving creates new compounds that are not found in humans or in nature, called radiolytic compounds. We don’t yet know what these compounds are doing to your body, but they are not health-promoting.

As with so many things we are doing within modern life, we have absolutely no clue what the ultimate outcome will be to the products we are making that don’t appear in nature. Whilst it’s possible that some of the chemical compounds we create will be benign, the chances are that a lot of them are going to be carcinogenic and destructive to life forms on this planet.

We NEED all of the species on this planet. Collectively, all species create a delicate balance within this world, all creatures performing a vital role in creating a life sustaining environment within which we can live.

The four minute video below features the story of when wolves were reintroduced into a national park and soon restored the delicate balance within that region. Soon afterwards other species of animals began to thrive, so it’s not just the plant life, or the vibrance of the river that begin to be restored… it’s the entire eco-system that benefits…

Microwave Inconvenience

We are being lied to! Have you ever made scrambled egg in a microwave oven? If you have you will know that it takes a pneumatic drill and a good hour of your time to chip the revolting dehydrated egg from the side of the dish.

It only takes a few minutes to steam most vegetables, and so microwave ovens really aren’t any faster than conventional cooking, especially when it comes to the most healthy methods of cooking food, like steaming and poaching.

Microwaves don’t mildly brown food, unlike a lovely cut of meat being gently pan fried in a little ghee.

*Clarified butter, animal fats and coconut oil are the safest and healthiest fats to cook with… (we are being lied to about which fats are good for us!)… all of which allow the meat or fish to brown a little, adding optimal flavour to a meal.

*However, this burning of the food is carcinogenic, and so it is only sensible to do it occasionally and not too excessively. Plus, the muscle meat is the least valuable part of an animal for us. The skin, the fat and most of all the organ meats, (particularly the liver), as well as the bones are the most nutritious parts of any animal.

Cleaning out a microwave oven is quite an operation too… and you never get it really clean… Microwaves have to flush air through the oven whilst in use, and so fans and vents are present in all models, where food particles and bacteria can hang out.

Microwave Oven Cleanliness

Because microwave ovens use fans and vents this means that there’s large parts of the microwave oven that are bathed in micro food particles that you will never be able to reach with a cleaning cloth. Ugh!

By contrast, a hob based vegetable steamer will take seconds to wash and all parts of the surface area of the pots are accessible.

All in all, microwave food is not good from any angle!

    Microwave imparts rotation of polar molecules. The quantum mechanics allows the influence of this molecular rotations to the innermost energy levels say electron transitions between orbits. This would enough to create new molecular species whose toxicity have not been evaluated. Further leaking microwaves into the surrounding may be detrimental if the housewife is sick or pregnant
